My pleasant old companions ! Here you stand A goodly company around my room, trihoice, racy spirits—spirits never dull ; Some gay, some grave, some pensive, none severe. Various in mood, yet changeless in regard— Yon look upon me, as youlooked Os yore, VVith the same kind, inviting visages— Worn may be, somewhat wrinkled, slightly dimmed But constant, constant as my hopes of Heaven ! Ye arc iny ministers, ye are my friends— Not friends of yesterday, but long-tried friends. What days we've passed together and what nights 1 low many heavy hums have you made light! »low many lagging moments decked w ith wings ! With how much knowledge have you filled iny mind ! What wise instruction yielded to my heart! " The world is too much with us outward forms \ nd things of sense absorb our mental pow ers *. 4ut you are too much from us, you are left Foo oft neglected in your quiet nooks. The vainlv wise turn from the printed page To rend the Ibok of Nature —falsely deemed mpressed w ith brighter lessons than your own. \bsurd Philosophy !

[American Monthly Magazine. MISCELLANEOUS. The Alauiiie’s Partner at the Ball. A ULUAN INCIDENT. Exquisite Pcpita! with what kindness, and and elegance didst thou lead thy pupil—a tranger to thee and to thy country —through te mazy involutions of that glorious contra tanza! Now twining within mine tiiine arm, ght as the eiderdown—now placing on niy -.boulder thy beauteous and jewelled hand, So white,so soft, so delicate, so sleek, As thou hadst worn u lily for thy glove— though at that moment, it was hidden by tho bright Parisian kid, reaching nearly to thy itntpled elbow—and with the other slightly pressing my left arm, while my right gently* ind tremblingly encircled thy slender waist—- tby heavenly blue eyes half averted from my admiring, yet respectful gaze—while round uid round we twirled, now separating and now meeting, and twining again together, in end less alternations to tiie inspirating movements of thy native music ! Ah ! how often, even now, does thy slight, yet faultless figure glide by mein my daily niusings and nightly dreams, and thy beauteous, angelic, face, beaming all intelligence, and goodness, and purity, appear to me, as on that happy eve—now nearly twenty years ago—when thou allowedst me, then unknown and unintroduced, to sit besido thee, and talk to thee of distant lands, and question thee of thine own bright isle, and lead thee round the circle of the giddy waltz ! It was on the first night of my arrival at Matanzas from the Havana, in the island of Cuba. I had not delivered my letters of in, troduction —but hearing there was a grand public ball in the town, I had proceeded tliith er, and had waltzed with some of the highest and most beautiful girls in the island—such is the difference in the manners and customs of people! The public balls here, as in the Havana, are open to all. Persons, even of the highest dis tinction, let their public rooms for the night to some speculator, who lights them up for the oc casion, the grand salons being appropriated for dancing, and some of the small rooms for gaming—the expenses for music, lights, and attendance being defrayed by a small sum for admission, generally about half a dollar.
